Slow Down

In Matthew 7 Jesus talks about two different roads that lead to two different places:

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. (Matthew 7:13-14)

Many people take the wrong road and only few find the narrow path.

If that is true then wouldn’t it make sense for us to slow down?

Shouldn’t we hit the brakes, pull over to the side, and make sure we are on the road that leads to life?

This teaching of Jesus is the conclusion of ‘The Sermon on the Mount.”

It’s a sermon that has been all about raising the bar of the commitment for those who would follow him.

It’s a narrow road, but it’s a road that leads to life.

I’m just wondering, is it possible that you think you are on the narrow road but you are actually on the broad road?

Could it be that you have set cruise control, turned up the Christian radio, and are traveling down the road of destruction with a Jesus fish on your bumper?

“If a person is wrong about being right with God, then ultimately it really doesn’t matter what he or she is right about.”

So before you continue driving down the road, I’m just asking you to slow down the car and look at some of the signs and ask yourself what road you are on.

This is too important not to take seriously!
